    Probably a better indication of my son's athletic ability than my photography skills.

    Sorry for the late post, being in different time zones and having crazy work schedules makes life interesting.

    Honorable Mentions:
    • Alexander.Of.Oz: I understand that the seasons are different, but I just love the photo and makes me wish we had sunsets right now
    • AlexH: Nice idea, but more light is needed to see what the subject is doing.
    • Acearchie: Fantastic setup, the only thing that kills the shot for me is the fact that the face is all washed out.
    • Jkramerbob: Good action shot, but a little awkward with the feet cropped off.
    Third Place: CharlieBrandt09
    Nice photo, it really makes you feel like you’re there.

    Second Place: JDDavis
    Great all around photo, looks like people of all ages are having a good time.


    First Place: DirtySocks85
    This shot definitely seems to best embody summer fun – people out on the water in the sun, smiling and having a good time.

    Congrats to the winners. I guess I just ran out of time for this one.

    Is that Tim Cook on the left in the background?

    • Well done Socks, a fun Summer image!

      Thanks for the honourable mention. My image was taken in Summer, in early January a couple of years ago from memory.

    Wow, thanks! I'm honored. We had our annual "Riverfest" here in Wichita last week, and I snapped this shot. I even sent it in to a friend who is a news anchor for one of the local network affiliates and this photo was on the local news last week. Sometimes you're just in the right place at the right time.

    Congrats to JDDavis and CharlieBrandt09! Great summer pics from everyone this week.

    Nice set of shots! jkramerbob, I thought yours was very creative and well timed. I enjoyed it.

    ----------

    LOL. I wish :cool: That's my dad (he's a good guy too). There is a connection (kinda) in that my dad and myself graduated from Auburn University like Tim. I've never looked at the timing but I imagine Tim Cook graduated a bit after my dad.
